Free throws!! Come on hawks.

IA would have won the game if IA made their free throws. DEFENSE! down 4 with 1:30 min.
That foul is why I have zero respect for the game of basketball or its players.
That said I always support the Hawks.

Gesell....your freshman is showing
DAMN Gesell, where's Clemmons... IA had chances and screw it all up tonight. Lead going back to 7 with 50 sec.
FT: 13-26 ..........
Ummm, Anthony, we need 3 ptrs now, not lay ups
13-26 on free throws. IA didn't execute at the line. I think IA will dance, just need to have a complete game on both halves on the road.
Iowa wins in VEGAS, 63-72. UGHGGHG....
back to bubble status....had a great chance to make a statement tonight, but poor fundamentals and decision making did them in
I really think the poor shooting was due to tired legs and how intense they were on defense against Wiscy. I know they're young, stud athletes, but shooting a basketball is not easy with sore legs and OSU is a good team.
But a good fight down the stretch out of the boys.
It's always something -- and tonight, one of the most basic fundamentals, FTs.
And we dominated the boards, esp on offense.
Well this was a game that I had as a L all the way. Became lethargic at the end of the half and beginning of the 2nd period. That was just as key as the piss poor FT shooting. Need more press, either full court or 3/4 for the entire game, not just when we have to. We have the depth. And I would've loved to see Woodbury get more than 12 minutes a game. Anyway, never should have been down 23 to begin with. Nice to see them claw their way back to cut it to 4...on the road, hostile environment vs a "Top 15" team. Actually outscored OSU 41-38 in the 2nd half.
I say "Top 15", but I don't know why. DeShaun Thomas is a very good player and the team is full of athletes. But their overall basketball IQ is hovering somewhere just above retard level. Aaron Craft? I've watched that boy since his sophomore year of high school. Grew up 30 minutes away from me. Seen him dozens of times, live and on local TV. I'm telling you right now, give that kid a piss test. Either he's boozing it up on High St, or smoking pot with the football team, because he's a shell of himself. I've never seen his shooting stroke so mechanical. Truly sad.
